im a big fan of bait casters but when using the lighter stick baits, cant cast all that far and when its later fall or early spring when wearing gloves, i always feel like a birds nets is going to happen any seconed. So whats a good walleye crank bait rod in spinning for some where near the 100$ mark???? Thanks for any help

For lighter cranks with a spinning rod I prefer a ML power with a moderate action.You will be using a bait caster for larger cranks any way.A moderate action is just better for keeping fish on and helps with letting the fish take the bait when using cranks.Also go long at least 7ft.

I too am strictly a Walleye guy, but lvoe the bait casters. However for the lighter crankbaits, I use a 7' or 7'6" Spinning Rod to eliminte that backlash with lighter abits and fighting wind.

always was a medium light 7-0 fan, but with heavier cranks and deep diving cranks I wanted to try a stiffer, faster action rod. Picked one of these up this spring and I love it. I actually always grab it first now.
